what do the backup alarm systems consist of on superduties?

i recently replaced my rear bumper with a bumper that has all the backup sensors and wiring installed in it and i was just wondering how many components would be left to complete the backup alarm system or if it could even be done on this truck. I got the bumper for such little money i couldnt turn it down and im just curious as to how much would be left to make it functional so the sensors arent just there doing nothing.

much easier and cost effective to add an aftermarket one

Re: what do the backup alarm systems consist of on superduties?

I haven't looked into it but would it not be as simple as running a wire from your backup lights to the new sensors, then to a beeper of some sort, then to ground. How many wires on the sensors (2 or 3)? I would think you could pick up a backup beeper at NAPA/Autozone then you could hear it in the cab and the idiot standing behind you would know to get out of the way.

Re: what do the backup alarm systems consist of on superduties?

Yeah i recall seeing only 3 wires making up the whole harness in the bumper so its definitely not a very intricate thing(not like it needs to be anyway). This doesnt sound like a bad idea at all, ill see what components are available to finagle something and ill go from there.

Re: what do the backup alarm systems consist of on superduties?

It may be cheaper to buy a kit but I wouldn't think a beeper from NAPA would be very much.
I would guess the three wires are: 12v from backup lights, ground, and signal to beeper. Which wire is which I couldn't say without a diagram. I wouldn't just start trying wires because you could damage the sensors if you get the wrong combination.

From the factory a computer module is involved. And the 3 wires are 12v, vref, and signal return. You cannot just hook up 12v, ground and a signal to a speaker. You'll fry every sensor and have a speaker that does nothing.
